Fiber Faire 2015

 Hello Fiber Friends!
As the time draws near for our 2nd Annual Athens Area Fiber Faire, we wanted to be sure you had a little information about our growing festival. Our inaugural year was so successful that we have moved to a larger location to offer expanded classroom space, outdoor exhibits, and MORE VENDORS!
This year’s Athens Area Fiber Faire, housed in the Athens Community Center, will offer a little bit of something for everyone in the fiber world. Situated near the intersection of US 33 and US 50, our expansive new venue boasts ample parking, single-level floorplan, and multiple gathering spaces. Several hotels and restaurants are within easy walking distance.
Classes offered include: 
Knitting, Weaving, Tatting, Needlepoint, Spinning, Crocheting, Loom knitting, Needle Felting, Ravelry 101, and Ask the Expert! We will also be offering children’s classes this year where we’ll each Arm Knitting and French (Tube) Knitting. Keep an eye out for the schedule to be posted soon!
New highlights this year include: 
• Outdoor displays of live fiber animals. Come pet alpacas, stroke sheep, and snuggle bunnies. 
• Expanded concessions and food trucks for a variety of tasty treats. 
• Two fashion shows to awe, inspire, and tickle your fancy.
Our Marketplace vendor list is still growing, but we already have confirmed booths containing a vast array of fiber related merchandise such as yarn, fabric, supplies, accessories, books, notions, finished goods, tools, and so much more!
Located in the scenic Hocking Hills region of southeastern Ohio, Athens in October is bustling with autumn activities. From our top-ranked farmers market, through our quaint uptown, to the gorgeous Ohio University campus, Athens offers an astounding variety of shopping, dining, hiking, biking, and sporting events for all ages. Only an hour from Columbus, and within 3 hours of Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Pittsburgh, Athens makes a wonderful day trip or weekend getaway spot. So spread the word and mark your calendars; we’ll look forward to seeing you in October!
The Athens Area Fiber Faire is being presented by ARTS/West: Athens Community Gateway to the Arts.
